and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >> just getting a little update here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president pulled off a win lastnight. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the table. the state does technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that appears to be the largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. it's improbable. it looks like president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is said and done. but let's go and show you how the president did it, if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting her
or at a bank of america near you. >>> good friday morning. i'm chris jansing. the president will head to pennsylvania in a few minutes, and he'll be visiting a toy company, using that small manufacturer as the latest backdrop to make his case to the american people about the fiscal cliff. yesterday treasury secretary tim geithner presented an offer to the congressional leaders including the stipulation that taxes go up on the wealthy. the headlines tell the story. "the washington post" wrote, "obama offers plan for cliff, not compromise." "the new york times." "gop balks at white house plan on fiscal crisis." and "the wall street journal," obama's cliff offer spurned. i want to bring in joanne reed and molly ball, political reporter for "the atlantic." good to see both of you. good morning. >> good to be here. >> mitch mcconnell, we are told, literally laughed at the white house's offer. and if you listen to speaker boehner, it's not going very well. take a listen. >> i'm disappointed in where we are and disappointed in what's happened over the last couple of weeks. but going over the
election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senator who is taking the podium soon, sherrod brown. this is one of the hidden stories of ohio. we've heard a lot about the auto bailout being successful here. sherrod brown is still a very powerful organization of working class democrats who in the past have sometimes gone republican. this year, they're holding obama up is making him look pretty good in ohio is that he's got these working class white voters that he lacks in some other states. >> well, it is interesting, aaron, when i was talking to both the romney and obama campaign folks here in columbus yesterday, they said they're going to be watching not suburban columbus, but cuyahoga county and a lot of those working class voters, of course, also african-american voters, but they're loo
to play for you something hillary clinton had to say yesterday. >> america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that is why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> obviously, there's a lot at stake here for the people who live in the region, for the entire international community. but politically, i'm wondering what's at stake for hillary clinton and for this white house that seems to be approaching the middle east process differently than it did in the first term. >> well, if you look ahead to the next four years of obama's second term, it's clear that the middle east is going to be a region that is going to be very much on his mind between what's going on in gaza, libya, syria, and of course the whole situation with iran and the nuclear weapons there that they're trying to build there. this is a situation where all these things are tied together. hamas clearly feels embo
announcer ] the bankamericard cash rewards credit card. apply online or at a bank of america near you. >>> congress returns to work today for its lame-duck is session. on top of to-do list, work to avert a fiscal crisis. the president is set to sit down with congressional leaders on friday to work on a compromise. the automatic tax increases and budget cuts are set to kick in at the end of the year. congressman, good morning. >> thank you. good to hear from you. >> tell me your path, how does this deal get done? >> i think that the president outlined it perfectly well. that there has to be revenue generation, we have to look at those top income brackets. and they have to pay their fair share. without revenue generation, no one wants those automatic cuts and number two, it's a question of fairness. you can talk about loopholes. it's not going to generate the revenue need to soften the potential cuts and also, let us invest and i think one of the investment areas is going to have to be job creation. i think the president outlined it. we hope he sticks to that and i think the republicans
toys in stores now, from america's gift headquarters, walmart. in stores now, is bigger than we think ... sometimelike the flu.fer from with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. the flu comes on fast, so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu. music is a univers
. the future of empower. of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members-elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time their parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. i said yesterday we did not have the majority but we have the gav gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel, we do not have the majority but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans, something like that. today we have over 60 house democratic women. very good. [ applause ] not enough. we want more. but all of us who were there that dozen early on, that dozen of us there, we all took responsibility to try
activists from freedom works and america's prosperity. freedom works was focused on a senate candidate. america's prosperity, a lot of persuasion. you might see and you were referring to 2004, you might see a lot of visceral opposition for the president that's not translated. >> i want to bring in ohio secretary of state, john houston. good morning. >> great to be with you. >> we are seeing some long lines to vote early. 2500 people lined up in cleveland. i think we had another 3700 people voting in franklin county in akron. their wait was two hours. you tried to limit early voting this past weekend. do you think the lines prove it was needed? >> actually, i didn't. the state law eliminated it. when i was given the option, i opened up the polls for saturday, sunday and monday. in ohio, we have 35 days to vote. this is the 34th day of voting we've had. it's very easy to vote in this state. michigan, pennsylvania, kentucky, they don't have early voting. we do and we're going to see record turnout, we believe, from the early vote in this election cycle l. >> well, let's talk about the pro
in the cabinet and make sure there's representation of what america looks like. in a sense, stronger numbers amongst latinos and african-americans than many people expected. as you look at the entire cabinet, the white house will also look at diversity. but i don't know all of those candidates actually have a lot going for them. >> we only have a few seconds left but toif ask you about treasury secretary. nobody sleep when is you're in the cabinet but timothy geithner probably got less sleep than most people given the economic circumstances right now. talk to me about who could replace timothy geithner or what kind of person. >> well, you know, treasury secretary is, you know, equal, at least equal to the state department in the importance of the role. so especially in the negotiations that are coming up. i expect timothy geithner to stay through most of the negotiations and i hope they conclude soon. i think this is an area where the president works extremely closely with the treasury secretary. so that relationship is important. social security also important for the treasury secretary to
. this is going to be the busiest airport in america over the holiday week, so a lot of people are coming through chicago as they get on the way to grandmas or wherever they may be going. a majority of the people, richard, will be be traveling in cars. they will be making the road trips this holiday season, and a couple of reasons for that. first of all, the weather has been unseasonably great across the nation and it is going to be in the 50s here in chicago and you don't need a jacket here in chicago which is great, but driving the roadways is the fact that the gas prices have dropped over the last couple of weeks and making it more affordable for people to travel. and another look at the data is showing that they are not going as far and most people traveling 5 hurn mile 500 miles and it is easy to do it by kcar. either way, if you go by the roads or the airport, you need to understand it is going to be crowded and busy and have a plan and as part of the plan, make sure that you provide some extra time to get through security and do the things that you will need to have a fun and safe holiday.
where morgan freeman is lending his voice to an ad for marriage equality. >> america's stands at the dawn of a new day. freedom, justice, and human dignity always guided our journey towards a more perfect union. now across our country we're standing together for the right of gay and lesbian americans to marry the person they love. >> campaign workers are complaining about linda mcmahon. staffers said they got check that is bounced off working for the failed senate candidate and they say replacement checks were issued. mcmahon spent $100 million on her two campaigns. this past weekend a small fire broke out at the state component. a couple of maintenance workers were taken to the hospital and staff evacuated and things were back to normal quickly. the state department says the fire appears accidental. president obama bought a few books on small business saturday. he took his daughters to the one more page book store in arlington, virginia, and the commander in chief purchased 15 books, gifts for family members for christmas. >>> we are waiting for our first glimpse of the capit
muslim elected to congress yet islam in america goes back more than a century. >> yes. >> that could be said of many of the religions i was just mentioning here. why do you think this is the era that people like this are finally being elected? >> well, i think it is because people are participating, people are engaged in our democratic process. america is more open and tolerant than it ever has been in its history and i think that folks want to be part of this great american experiment. i mean, america started out great for religion. it said congress shall make no law establishing religion nor bridge the free exercise thereof. also it said there is no religious test to hold office. and now we're seeing, reaping the fruits of that, those promises and it's really a great thing. >> un, we can't help but think of jfk. when he was elected. >> oh, yeah. >> the issue of catholicism was being debated. that was a big milestone. you being elected as a muslim was another. we have mitt romney as a presidential candidate, a mormon. >> right. >> we look at all of these here. the issue of religion,
the rich a tax break but we just couldn't get there. but, hey, we helped ow 98% of the people in america. i think we'd be barg frng strength. i'm very worried that we're getting back to where we were two years ago where the president was put in a box or a year ago when the president got put in a box over the republicans threatening to defall on our debt. we need to bargain from a stronger position and going over this bump in the road would give us that. >> as you know, there are a lot of people who would disagree with you about that, not just about the financial numbers per se, say the $200 billion the president is talking act next year, but also from a psychological standpoint. we've already seen wall street reacting in a negative way, concerned exactly about what would happen if a deal doesn't get made and their growing sense that it might not happen. consumer confidence has been up. americans concerned that their taxes are going to go up. you don't think that those are legitimate concerns? >> i think we can assure people that we would fix it early in january. wall street -- >> why should
protestant, jew or gentile, it seems this is a fight for america to protect those things that makes us different from other countries. so, yes, there's a lot of pressure to cut it, let the private sector do it, and i don't think that has any place in our society. let capitalism do what they want but let maeshg take care of the sick and the aimed. >> there is a split about what to do over whether to overhaul medicare and other entitlements. is that what you're hearing and what do you think is where this should end up? >> there is no question. you say overhaul medicare. medicare is how we pay for medical services for the aged. what we have to overhaul is how we provide those services. there is no question that pea pay double the price for medical treatment than any other country in the world. so the system has to be reviewed. it's not just the question of dollars and cents even though that continues to soar. we've got to stop it. and the affordable act that the president has passed has been a savings that contained it by not allowing people 0 to get free care without insurance and having
, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> meantime, senate majority leader harry reid said he is open to working together too, but there was a but. >> i'm going to do everything within my power to be as conciliatory as possible. i want to work together. but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> let me bring in legendary investigative journalist carl bernstein and political reporter for "the washington post" nia ma malika henderson. good morning to you. everybody is sounding cordial, but we still have the same players. has anything changed, carl? >> i think this is a huge change election in terms of certainly things i did not foresee in terms of the agenda, gay rights, the agenda of women unencumbered by the so-called social conservatism that has dominated our politics and slowed down legislative achievements as hostage over
... [ woman ] 3. [ male announcer ] the bankamericard cash rewards card. apply online or at a bank of america near you. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes and is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause symptoms such as sweating, shakiness, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be serious and life threatening. ask your healthcare provider about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. other possible side effects include injection site reactions. tell you
actually, more than a million people responded to that survey that obama for america put out and said they're interested in volunteering. so is part of what the president is feeling the security he's feeling about getting a deal done the way he wants to get it done from we the people? >> either security or arrogance depending on your perspective. the campaign never ends. and the question and i do think it's a question is whether the sort of get the public to weigh in here is more effective than get in the back room and cut the deal. i would say one of the things that's very different about this negotiation than, say, the debt ceiling negotiation is, first of all, there has been an election as the president is kind of the first one to remind people. and number two, though, i think secretary geithner does not think going over the cliff is a good idea, i think that he, the white house, the president, are way more willing to take that risk of going over at least for a few weeks than they were in confronting the debt ceiling where they felt that their leverage in negotiating space was much more
